Love DNA of famous classic novels (infographic)

Love DNA of classic novels

The infographic charts how much love, literally, there is in famous classic novels.

You’ll be surprised to discover what Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility have in common, how “love” evolved in books since 1800, and much more.

Classic books from public domain can be read, re-used, and researched, bringing surprising facts like the ones in the infographic above.

Once the book becomes available for online reading, it can be analysed using basic search feature every web browser has. This is what we did with html files of selected classic books available at Project Gutenberg.

The content of public domain titles can feed tools like BookLamp and Google Books Ngram Viewer. It allows for a wider – or deeper – view on the researched topic.

Wonderful illustrations from classic books can be re-used legally. The British Library Flickr profile is the biggest single repository of such images.

All that makes it possible to get creative in how we present the content of these books. In the end it leads to promoting the benefit we all love – the joy of reading.
